Eden Park to host Te Matatini national kapa haka festival 2021
Having endured a series of obstacles in looking to expand its events program, Eden Park has announced that it is set to host the next Te Matatini national kapa haka festival in 2021.
The announcement comes after the 2019 edition of the four-day event wrapped up in Wellington at the weekend.
Eden Park Chief Executive Nick Sautner said they were thrilled to be the 2021 hosts of what he dubbed the "renowned celebration of Māoridom", while also adding another memorable event to Eden Park's own history books.
Sautner advised that the historic venue is not just for sport, adding "Eden Park is committed to ensuring the community asset is used for more than just cricket and rugby.
"So this opportunity to showcase Māori culture on the same hallowed turf that some of our country's greatest athletes have graced fits perfectly."
Sautner went on to say they it was an honour to offer kapa haka groups the chance to perform and share their mana on a field of champions, while celebrating Māori Performing Arts.
